A REBELLION IS A-HAPPENING PEOPLE...

If you’re looking for something beyond the normal, Politburo are for you.

Politburo is an open resistance to the current dogma of cheaply made products, with a very finite life span, yet still very expensive.

In a word of standardization, where products and people look more and more alike, at Politburo, we think clothing says a lot about its wearer.

We believe in a menswear defying categorizations. We are outspoken fans of garments that express diversity and constant sense of sartorial evolution and… revolution. Clothes and accessories very much designed for how we live now, but in an inspired and unconventional way.

We believe in superior quality. A concept of quality not only conceived by an original design, but also by the choice of materials and production techniques. Politburo revels in the real beauty of menswear. We are proud to make accessible the tradition of Italian tailoring craftsmanship, using the best materials to create new contemporary products.

We believe in time. Every product has to be lasting a lifetime and beyond. We believe that, while getting older, every product has to evolve into something precious. Showing visible signs of experience, clothes and accessories have to turn into being an expression of a personal, and therefore truly unique, lifestyle philosophy.

This is the statement of the less obvious luxury.

I like the jackets, I like the trousers, I like the accessories, hell, just take a look.
